Seniors Summer League - Week 18!

summer leagueA fairly low turnout this week (Monday 14th August) no doubt influenced by the heavy morning rain.  However, the rain stopped just before 10 and the round was played in dry overhead conditions.  Eight Seniors turned out, just one more than the minimum required for the day's scores to count towards the League.  The winner on the day was John Law with a net par round of 36 points although it did include two zeroes.  Second place was determined on countback with Duncan Shiell's 33 (also including two zeroes) just pipping Steve Mather's 33 (... and another two zeroes) on countback

John Law's League handicap falls by 1 to 14.

The individual Stableford scores for both 14th August can be found below the League table.

At the top of the table, Alister Legge retains his leadbut it has been cut from 11 points to 6.5 points. Alister is on 67.5 with John Lunn second on 61,0Duncan Shiell moves into third place on 56.5 just ahead of Tam Glendinning.   As we move towards the sharp end of the season, Alister's problem is that he now needs to finish in the the top five positions in a single week's competition to increase his score.  His tenth best League points score is 5.0  John Lunn can finish in the top eight in the next round and move forward, Duncan Shiell can finish in the top ten and Tam Glendinning can finish in the top seven in order to increase League totals.

We have had a number of changes in the top positions this year and no doubt this will continue until the end of the season in October or November.

Next week will be a standard League event.  All Seniors are very welcome and should be in the Changing Room by 9:45am for a 10:00am start.

Results are sorted by Total, (highest to lowest), then by number of scores counting to the total (Lowest to highest), then by Mondays played (lowest to highest) and finally by Christian Name if still a tie.

The Summer League runs on Monday mornings, 10am, when the Yellow tees are in place.  For 2017 this means 10th April to approximately the end of October, beginning of November.  When Mondays coincide with a Seniors Medal, 18 hole stroke play scores will be converted to Stableford and League scores using current League handicaps.  There will be a couple of weeks when the league coincides with a Home team match at Minto.  In those weeks the league can still be played as long as seven Seniors are available for play.  If less than seven, Seniors not in the match should still play.  When a Home Match day coincides with a League day, we would ask that League players start at 09;30 rather than 10:00.

On week 1, League handicaps equal National Handicaps.   For individual Stableford scores in excess of 36 any week [or 2*n when n holes are played], the player’s  League handicap is cut by 1 for every 2 points or part thereof over 36, i.e. 37 / 38 incurs a cut of 1, 39 /40 incurs a cut of 2 etc.  In addition the week’s winner has his handicap cut by a further 1. In previous years, League handicaps have stayed the same or gone down only..  There has been no provision for handicaps to rise. Perhaps there should be, to even up any handicap anomalies; see below

League handicaps are completely independent of National Handicaps which remain unchanged throughout.  The aim of adjusting handicaps is to spread the prize money around, ensure everyone has an equal chance of winning and provide close competition throughout the Series as well as providing a pleasant round of golf.
